Plans for a 212-home redevelopment of a former golf club in Warkwickshire have been submitted by an offshoot of regional housebuilder Hayfield Homes.

Hawkesbury masterplan

The £115m plans for the 72-acre former Hawkesbury Golf Club site near Bedworth were submitted by strategic land trader Terra Strategic, set up in 2015 by the management team at Hayfield Homes.

The golf club site has an allocation in the Nuneaton and Bedworth local plan for 380 homes, with this full planning application representing the first phase of the development. The site just north of Hawkesbury village was historically used for mining prior being turned into a golf course.

Terra Strategic said in a statement that 25% of the 212 homes will be affordable, and that the scheme will retain existing feature including four pools as part of the ecology strategy. The scheme, designed by Thrive Architects, will include cycle paths, a sustrans link, a community building, allotments and an orchard.

James O’Shea, managing director of Terra Strategic said: “This site has huge potential to create a vibrant new community, which is only a five-mile canalside walk or cycle ride into Coventry city centre. It will have a transformative effect on the local area.”
